    Note: I did not appreciate nor agree with this book much at all, considering it a well-intentioned attempt of someone who has so boxed himself into linear thinking that he is unknowingly incapable of comprehending the very thing he has studied and learned about—at most, the book provides a collection of irritating daily forms that most bipolar people will not fill out, because these structured forms represent the inverse of our interests, motivations, and capabilities, and they exacerbate our condition; however, I offer it here as an alternative perspective.
